Chefchaouen and Riad Baraka were the highlights of my trip to Morocco! The riad was very clean, included lockers to keep important belongings, safe and close in the middle of all the action of Chefchaouen. Everyone working there when I visited in late July 2016 was incredibly friendly and willing to answer any questions you could have about excursions or...

Location: Excellent. In medina Riad: Colorful and nicely decorated. They have a common area in the entrance of the riad and a roof terrace. Music is often playing. It was rainy and cold during my stay, so most people were trying to stay warm in the lobby. It is a cramped area with not much seating but it worked out....

After the hustle and bustle that is Tangier, our time at Riad Baraka was like stepping into a new world. We have no complaints about our double room with bathroom. The breakfast options were all lovely and priced fair. The owner and her staff run a professional--albeit, laid-back operation--effectively keeping guests happy. They are eager to organize tours and answer...
